Noon on Saturday sounds like a good time to me. I'm afraid anything later may run into issues with getting to see the TMR concert lol I also wouldn't mind smaller Friday and Sunday shoots since I'm really only bringing one costume with me. Or at least I think I am, a friend may be borrowing my Kid Loki from me which will only leave Volstagg for me. And I just love gabbing with comics people.

And some clear direction would be amazing as last year's shoot really was

Despite a bit of miscommunication regarding the location(after the semi-disastrous Gazebo thing with the other group), people generally seemed to think it went well and reacted positively to another shoot organized and/or partially run by me -- I certainly had a lot of help from people yelling out the next shot when my voice went hoarse later in the shoot.

Now, we're about 5 weeks out from Otakon, so we want to get a set date, time, and location out. I would run the shoot on Saturday, partially because that's when I'm cosplaying Marvel again, but also because more costumers are generally out on Saturday. I note that, on the spreadsheet, the noon timeslot at the indoor fountains is available on Saturday. I think this would be the best place to do it, as we will likely be at least somewhat sizeable, and I do not want to make people walk in spandex et al all the way to the outdoor fountains. There's also the same location at 1, but I'm not sure how big to expect the Nintendo shoot to be and I expect it'd be fairly sizeable or larger than us.

I'd love to run the shoot, having run the one at Katsucon fairly well. I had several people helping me both keep track of the list of shoots to call and helping resolve problems over the course of the shoot, so anyone else who wants to run it, I'd love to work with you.
I am all for Saturday at noon! Like I said, I don't really want to run the shoot but I'll gladly help you out. Just tell me what needs to be done. Also after being fencing club president for a year and having to yell out footwork drills to around 60 people, I've gotten really good at yelling.

Bummer. I probably won't be able to make that. I'll see what I can do.

I was planning on doing Kate Bishop (Hawkeye vol4 suit) on Friday, but if I can manage the quick change between this and a private shoot Saturday at 3, I'll probably pop in here too!

Marvel Photoshoot, Otakon 2013

I'm going as Peter Parker on Friday this year, and because my RA makes trudging back to the hotel to change costumes on Saturday pretty much impossible (I'm going as Dean, and if I changed I'd end up way too sore and probably end up in my emergency wheelchair), I would like to set up a second Marvel photoshoot on Friday.

Looking at the master post of gatherings, I'm thinking 7 p.m. on Friday at the indoor fountains would be good. Anyone up for it? (Help a rickety arthritic 22 year old out?)

Hello TwilightImp626! I am not opposed to another shoot being run, but I do not think I am available at that time, so I unfortunately would not be able to help you out. It's perfectly reasonable to have two shoots for a large convention. In the future when hoping to propose a shoot, please look to make sure there isn't already a thread before making a new thread at first, since that helps keep information centralized.

I see you posted in one of the gathering threads saying five PM, and if you would like, I can put in to this thread with both of the shoot informations to get them on the spreadsheet, listed as such:

FRIDAY MARVEL SHOOT:
Time: 5:00 PM
Location: Indoor Fountains
Shootrunner: TwilightImp626, dressed as Peter Parker

SATURDAY MARVEL SHOOT:
Time: 12 noon
Location: Indoor Fountains
Shootrunner: Tumblr User Robbiebaldwin, dressed as Speedball [I do not use my coscom often]


Additionally once these are sorted out we can make Facebook events and submit the link.

What does everyone think of one Marvel shoot at 5 on Friday and one at noon on Saturday?

I'm fine hosting the Friday shoot myself, and I'll have a couple people that would be willing to help me. It would be at 7, not 5 (I decided to tweak the time a little).

Thanks so much for getting back to me!

(I only used my coscom name because I've got 3 rp blogs and 1 personal on tumblr that I jump around from)

Oh my God. Cat. I didn't realize that was you. Hahahaha. Now I feel like a total derp.

Anyway if I don't decide to go to the AMV contest, I should be good on Friday night. I'll help you out if I'm there and you need any help, twilightimp.

That's absolutely fine. I'll put in the information for these shoots in the main gathering thread sometime in the next day or so -- I plan to make a Facebook event for the Saturday shoot to gauge how much space we might take up.

Kat, I talked about cosplaying Speedball. In what universe would this not be me? Silly.

And that seems like the Friday shoot is well attended to then! Great!

I'd love it if we did a sunday shoot as that's the day I'll be cosplaying Harley Quinn. I'd be up for it at just about any time.
